Governor Little announced the criteria for the $300 million in Idaho Rebound Cash grants today. We’ll provide a brief summary of the most important points but highly recommend you visit the website to learn everything you need to know!
I highly suggest you do two things immediately:

Any eligible Idaho-domiciled company with an Employer Identification Number (EIN) can apply for a Rebound Idaho Small Business Grant, including:
How Much are They?
Grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded to eligible applicants.
In cases where the eligible entity has received insurance compensation, an SBA-backed Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan, or other federal assistance less than $10,000, the grant will be the difference between the award amount and the insurance compensation or loan.

The Rebound Idaho Small Business Grants may be used to reimburse the costs of business interruption caused by required closures which may include:

The first wave of applicants will open at noon MT on May 11 and close at noon MT on May 15
